This should work for both the Tom Stone and Bullet man figures.
As we all know the elastic used in Tom Stone was rubbish and after a while he fell apart. Not to worry below is a guide on how to rebuild him and it is pretty easy providing you have great patience.
First your chap will be looking something like this.
All you need are the following tools a flat head screw driver, a metre of corded black elastic either 2 or 3mm. I always use 3mm, a knitting needle or something like it and a paper clip that has been straightened.
First make sure the arms match the correct side of his body, pop the neck post inside of Tom's head if he has one using the screwdriver.
Then thread the elastic through his top arm I always start on his left side and work to the right.
Then thread it through his forearm on the outer side of the pin that is inside.
Next thread it through the other side of the pin
You now have both ends of the elastic at the top of his arm. Make sure you have the end piece that is the furthest up and thread it into his body and out through his neck. If you look at the hole where his neck post goes you will see a small pin make sure the elastic comes up through the left side of the pin if you are starting with his left arm. With the end of the elastic you have left sellotape it to the knitting needle and poke it through the same hole through to the one at the other side so he looks like this.
With this piece of elastic thread his right arm together exactly the same way you did his left one.
Now thread this piece through the right side pin in his neck and tie off.
Thread both ends through the neck post and form a big knot so the elastic cannot slip through the post you will have to make multiple knots for this to work.
Now you have a complete Tom Stone
I am sorry but I have not mentioned the purpose of the paper clip. This is your best friend doing this job as you will use it to help pull the elastic through his arms by fishing for it. Another tip is when threading elastic through areas such as his arms try and get as much inside as possible as it is easier to catch hold of.
All that is left is to simply put an uniform on him. Here is one I e-bayed earlier.
